Thesis (M.A. in National Security Affairs) Naval Postgraduate School, March 1994

Bibliography: p. 113-124

This thesis uses the available literature regarding Egypt's nuclear development program from 1952 to 1981 to show that a weak state faces insurmountable structural restraints from developing nuclear weapons even if motivation and capability are present. According to international security conditions and initial science development in 1952, Egypt should have acquired nuclear weapons by 1970. Presidents Nasir and Sadat undermined the very Egyption agencies they created to develop nuclear weapons technology. A state's international security motives and techology devekopment are necessary but not sufficient conditions for nuclear proliferation. The necessary and sufficient condition is that a state be a strong state, able to extract resources from society and able to enact policies which require societal compliance. Weak state leaders cannot resolve the dilemma of opposing domestic security and international security priorities without constraining their designated state agencies from developing nuclear weapons. United States nuclear nonproliferation policy must consider the political variable of state strength in order to determin the likelihood of proliferation
